My Little Boy is Growing Up (1 of 2)

I've had Jack (see below) for what? a day?  And already it is time for a very serious discussion about using protection.

Of course, I installed an anti-virus program on him immediately.  I mean, every new baby has to got to get his vaccinations.  But I thought he was young enough that he could go a day without a box of condoms.

See, I have a wireless router on order from amazon -- which means I'll be sharing Jack's internet connection with the laptop (in what I hope will be a monogamous relationship -- come to think of it, the laptop is also male, so they'll need to get this sanctioned in San Francisco) ... ANYWAY, since I'll be setting that up as soon as the router comes, I innocently thought I could go a day or so without installing a firewall, seeing as I'll have to reconfigure the firewall once I get the shared connection set up.

In my defense, Mariette never needed a firewall.  That was a girl who knew how to keep her skirts down and her legs crossed, I am telling you.  Well, to tell you the truth, I think it was really that she was so old that all those young hackers weren't interested in her.  Age discrimination is a vile thing, but -- in this case -- it made all the bad guys ignore Mariette while they went after more attractive targets, so I never really had to go out of my way to protect her.

But oh... what a wild boy I have here. 

Keep in mind that I did a FULL virus scan on Jack last night.

I logged on this morning, did my usual internet business, turned Jack off, and went to work.

Got home about 14 hours later.  Turned Jack on (oh baby).  Clicked on IE.  Massive adware popped up all over the place.  Anti-virus went crazy with alerts about Trojans.  Suggested I do another full body scan of Jack, even though I'd just done one 24 hours ago.

LOL! LMAO! You are so so great with words! I could learn a lot from you (already have). "What a wild boy I have here" What do you expect from a guy named Jack (last name Daniels). You have a serious party animal there, gonna keep you on your toes.
